El Capitano remains on board: Anthony Losilla has extended his contract at VfL Bochum 1848 for another year, until June 30, 2024. In addition, the option is there to extend by another season if both parties agree. The 36-year-old Frenchman has been wearing the VfL jersey since 2014 and has since played 291 competitive games for the Blue-Whites with 36 goal contributions. In addition, “Toto” will remain with VfL after his active career in Bochum and take up a position as a coach.
Patrick Fabian, Director of Sport at VfL Bochum 1848, is pleased about the contract extension and said, “Having Toto in the team means: sporting quality, diligence, experience, a maximum of identification with the club, one hundred percent focus on the job. Anthony Losilla is a role model, not only for young players. He always leads the way, whether in training or in the game. In short: an absolute asset for the club. That’s why we’re happy to have him in the squad for at least another year and, moreover, we’re very pleased that he will continue to bring his personality and high level of sporting expertise to VfL after his career.”
Anthony Losilla now feels at home at Castroper Straße said, “I spent the longest part of my professional career in Bochum and at VfL. The city and the club have grown on me, my family is here, we feel comfortable. The commitment is great, I’m still burning for VfL and ready to support the team on the pitch. I’m also very pleased that the people in charge at VfL have confidence in me, even beyond my active career. I want to help inspire and train future generations of players for VfL.”
